New video surfaces of Jon Jones pumping iron and UFC heavyweight division just s--t a brick

Adversity introduces a man to himself.

Posted by Jon "Bones" Jones on Thursday, October 1, 2015

If Daniel Cormier retains his Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight title by defeating Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 192 on Saturday night (Oct. 3, 2015) in Houston, Texas, he's expected to once again call for a rematch against Jon Jones to see who can lay rightful claim to the division strap.

It would it be hilarious if Jones was like, "Nah, you can have it."

"Bones" often teased that he was heading up to the heavyweight division (this guy is ready) and judging by this recent video he released on Facebook, the embattled ex-champ is looking thick and swole. I guess it shouldn't come as a surprise, since the pound-for-pound great had plenty of downtime.

Jones was suspended from UFC for his hit-and-run charge last April, but managed to avoid jail time after plea bargaining with the district attorney (video). Now that he's been cleared to compete, it's just a matter of when the promotion decides to put him back in the line up.

I guess we'll know more after tomorrow night.
